Raspberry Vinaigrette

Raspberry Vinaigrette

August 18, 2011
I have been catching some serious slack from all around about not posting in over 4 weeks. Geeze, can’t a sista catch a break?  It’s A LOT of work keeping up a blog. I know for those of you who don’t have blogs, it looks easy peasy.  But it is uber time consuming, and when you have 2 kids out of school that want ALL of your time, well, food blogs get put on the back burner. The kids go back to school on Tues(did you catch me doing the happy dance?) and I will have lots of more time to devote to my blog (I hope).
Remember the baby shower I threw for my sister? This was the salad dressing I used on the salad. It is super easy and delicious. Nothing compares to homemade salad dressing. If you like a full flavor, tart dressing, this is the one for you. Makes my mouth water when I think about it.

    I love raspberry vinaigrette – the tartness of the dressing is perfect for so many lettuces. It really enhances the salad without completely overwhelming it. Great recipe!
